How to diable Add Participant button



During a call, my cheek will frequently hit the Add Participant button and I will end up dialing random people while I am on a call. How do I disable that button or move it so I don't continue to do that?


Thanks in advance for your input.

Hello cingra,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.


The "Add Participant" button cannot be disabled on your BlackBerry® smartphone. You may want lock your screen while on a call by pressing the button on the top of your BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900 smartphone.


Thank you.

Re: How to diable Add Participant button

WOW - -this happens to me all the time and its a real pain.  I added 3 people today to a call and its always the last caller.  This is a major issue in the phone that has me looking to switch out.   Its a shame there is not a feature control built into the phone to disable the "add participant" number.
